to the ozark hills and wright county, douglas, to the banks of the mississippi river, one of the largest concerns that my constituents have is the uncertainty surrounding the affordable care act. individuals are concerned about the relationship with their doctor and what their costs are going to be. businesses are left with the tremendous uncertainty. they are understaffed because they are afraid to hire additional employees and they're also firing employees just to fall below the 50 individual threshold. the effects of the affordable care act are adversely affecting the health care and jobs and the folks across this great country. that is why i'm offering my amendment to revise the definition of major regulations to include any regulation under the affordable care act with over 3,000 pages of federal regulations already issued and many more to follow, congress must prevent this widely unsupportive law from causing further damage to our health care system. mr. speaker, there is broad partisan opposition to the affordable care act. the administration has demonstrated its own certainty thr

a bridge spanning mississippi and minneapolis crashed during rush hour, killing 13 people and injuring 145. today i want to ask my colleagues a very simple question, should not americans be able to drive across a highway bridge with a reasonable expectation that it will not crumble away from underneath them? 67,000 bridges in our country are rated structurally deficient. 67,000 bridges. when those bridges fall, it isn't just the unlucky few on those bridges who suffer. whole economies that rely on safe and efficient transportation suffer. the i-5 bridge across the river just doesn't connect burlington and mount vernon, it connects the entire west coast and carries millions of dollars' worth of trade every day between can in a dean and the u.s. here's the good news. we know how to build safe bridges. there are thousands of civil engineers devoting their lives today to building good structures that don't fall down, but we need to pay for thefment we need to maintain them. maintain them when they are old and replace them when they need to. we can't wait for them to crumble into the water belo
